*From Dr Corum, thesis advisor
Steven, you should DEFINITELY continue to give your life to . . . literary novels (notice I omitted “obscure”).  What you have produced is a phenomenal work.  Others, in the past, have attempted to do something like you have done, but they did not come close to creating a work with such breadth and depth as you.

 

I apologize for taking so very long to complete the reading of your work, but it is very densely written in some sections, while others seem to be as lucid as anything I have ever read.  Your vocabulary probably exceeds my own (“fulgurant”), for which I am thankful, as I always enjoy being taught the existence of words I have not yet incorporated into my own lexicon.

The most successful parts of your work—for me—were the interactions between Luk, Aus, and the central character, as those passages moved the story along.  I think using the unrest and waging of police action in Bangkok sets up the intellectual discontent in the rest of the novel, but I would wish for a more balanced unfolding of the story with the intellectual ruminations.  The least successful passages for me were sometimes extremely lengthy sentences—see the first page of Chapter 20, for example—which contained so many parenthetical expressions that I would lose the train of thought.

But, on the whole, you have included all of the needed requirements of the Graduate School, and you have included, it seems, allusions to all of the major texts of the whole program, including some of your own choice that I would love to see taught (or maybe not) in our program: Look Homeward Angel, The Way of All Flesh, Donne’s poetry, Gorky’s My Childhood, and the work of Thomas Hardy, Ibsen, O’Neill, and Will Durant and that of John Dos Passos, whom I had the pleasure of meeting in 1969 (I still have an autographed copy of his Midcentury), not to mention, of course, the philosophers.

So . . . congratulations on completing your major task for the program.  I will be posting final grades shortly.  Let me know if you have questions or comments.

*From the Arkansas GazetteAn Eloquent Ode to Life's Many Gritty Moments by Amy L. Wilson Arkansas Gazette Little Rock, Arkansas April 1990 (note: concerning the print edition by the New Poets Series printed in 1990) An American Papyrus Steven Sills The Chestnut Hills Press Poetry Series 63 pages; $6.95 paperback Twenty-six poems make up this first published book by Steven Sills, 26, of Fayetteville. Sills' vision is often a dark one. He writes of the homeless, the abused, the forgotten people. He is also intrigued with the mystical, the sensual, loss--as in losing those whom we hold dear, such as a spouse or lover--as well as the lost, such as someone who is autistic, who seems unreachable. Sills' skillful use of the language to impart the telling moments of a life is his strength. He chooses his words carefully, employing a well-developed vocabulary. He is thoughtful about punctuation, where to break lines and when to make a new stanza. He's obviously well versed in "great" literature. Sills' command of language helps to soften the blows of some of the seemier passages found in his poems. Seamy may not be the best word to use. Perhaps gritty is a better word or just plain matter-of-fact and to the point, as in this descriptive passage from "Oracion A Traves De Gass," about the hopeless feelings of a respiratory therapy worker: "With the last of the air drawing in/ Begins to fold its walls; and he could imagine it/ Like he could imagine from unexact memories/ The woman last night at the hospital, whom he began to like---/ Her b

Reviews of the An Apostate: Nawin of Thais


OSCAR

I never liked the book.

GEORGIA

This is a very predictable author. When you get a book for free, you can read it. The intrigue is present, the unbundling is clear.

FINLAY

An interesting book, not like the other

OLIVIA

Not when you can say the book is better.
